Could you elaborate on the Watanabe engraved please? How is it different from the usual Wats?

And for ginsan honyaki,who does it?

I don't want to give any wrong information but my guess Watanabe is the same knife just hand engraved.

For the Honyaki Ginsan you have to contact Japan directly for a custom. One blacksmith who does it is this guy here

Ginsan ( g-3 ) is a stainless steel, it can’t be a “honyaki “ that’s rather a marketing term like suisin uses in their inox line

This knife here. Does that mean is not heat treated differentially like a 'true' honyaki?
Nope it’s not , it’s just monosteel stainless . To have a true honyaki you need a shallow hardening carbon steel , either you heat up half way through edge and achieve auto hamon or fully heat and quench clay coated blade and achieve hamon . Stainless steels contains 12-13 percent in solution and it hardens fully in air, not even close to honyaki .
Take these marketing terms with a pinch or a bucket of salt

Maybe a Forgecraft, and a way to figure out how to work a belt sander in my tiny shed without clogging everything with dust and driving the neighbors crazy. Otherwise I’m good for now.

I'd wish for a CKK small stainless slicer in 61hrc ginsan monosteel. Everything else I want I can buy with money.

Simple wishes, so simple they simply become... goals:

1. Improve sharpening station
2. Get sharpening to another level
3. Clear out some cluttering of knives
4. Get the steels I don't have from the makers I want: Denka, Kitaeji (I'd probably accept Shig Kurouchi, just want expertly treated Swedish), Watanabe B#2, either Masashi/Mizuno/Tanaka B#1, find a good utility and a good slicer.

Good thing being that only one point actually implies serious dough and is somewhat more difficult to fulfill.

Good luck with all of yours!
